Comments about RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster - 0.67 oz:
I was intrigued by this product, but also skeptical of the claims. It almost sounded like a miracle product! I have enlarged pores on my midface area that I can't stand, so I decided to give this product a try. I really did notice a difference the next day, which was surprising! Now, my pores certainly didn't disappear, and they're still visible, but they have definitely shrunk with use of this product. I feel like the results you see initially plateau pretty quickly, and then you continue to use the product to maintain the initial results. My one dislike about this product is how watery it is. It's literally as runny and thin as water, which makes it very difficult to use. I add drops to my moisturizer, but even with my hand cupped, product always runs out the crevices of my palm. Using it alone is even more challenging. I feel like a lot of product gets wasted because it's so thin and runny. Also, it's very pricey, as are most of Paula's "booster" type products. While I love Paula's products, I'm turned off by the increasingly high prices. Still, I would give this one a try if you're concerned abut large pores.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for Smaller Pores!
By Not Easily Impressed
from Albany, NY
About Me Minimalist
I'm on my first bottle of this, but where I stopped seeing results with my BHA (re: smaller pores), I started seeing my pores get smaller with this. Its amazing. I wear it at night mixed in with my serum and under a moisturizer, and when I wash my face in the morning, my skin looks amazing!

Didn't work for me. Made my acne prone skin break out.
By Zen Mom Dancer
from Seattle, WA
After reading all the rave reviews I was excited to try this product out for my enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. After months of giving it try, I finally gave up due to constant pimples it gave me - leaving me with more marks! I didn't notice any difference in pore size or wrinkles.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Makes me break out
from Caldwell, NJ
About Me Beauty Expert
I wanted to love this - I started using PC products in early May and have been very pleased with pretty much everything I've gotten. However, this makes me breakout - within 2 days of using, I get little whiteheads on my skin and within 2 days of stopping use, they go away. I kept trying to use it thinking it wasn't the product's fault, but it kept happening so it's safe to say it wasn't coincidental!

I used up a bottle of this, using it every day. I saw no results. Nada. Waste of money. I don't like the idea of "boosters". Just make good products that actually help my skin and don't complicate my routine.

Not all that I thought it would be
from Columbus, OH
It goes on nice without feeling greasy, especially adding it with a moisturizer. However, I did not see any results.

It doesn't work for me!
from Miami Beach, FL.
I don't know why this product doesn't work at all for me. It just does nothing! I use it in the morning, only 2 drops because it dry my skin, but I don't see any difference by using it or not.

from Dana Point, CA
My number one concern with my skin is enlarged pores. When I saw this item I was very excited to give it a try. Unfortunately, my skin hated it. I broke out and was oil slick greasy. I changed the amount that I used a day, from twice a day to once. 3 drops to 2 drops to 1 drop. No matter how much or little I used it irritated my skin. I'd stop using it for a day and no new breakouts. Give it another go and my skin would take a turn for the worse. This is the only Paula's Choice item I've ever had to return.
My fave PC booster!
By Glam girl
from Philadelphia PA
This has quickly become my favorite PC booster! I use it daily along with the C -15 booster and a serum.(alternate different PC serums each day) and this cocktail is potent yet non irritating. I have noticed rather quick results in terms of firmness, diminishing lines and wrinkles, brightness and overall skin tone. Already on my second bottle, loving it!

It's a subtle wow.
from Southern California
I use 4 drops of this in the morning, mixed with the Skin Recovery Serum, over my face and neck. I even use this over my eye area without irritation (and I have very sensitive eyes.) I let this concoction soak in for about 3-5 minutes while I continue getting ready. It soaks in really well and is not greasy. I apply a little moisturizer to my extra dry areas and finish with SPF and foundation/makeup as usual. It wears really well under makeup and my skin feels comfortable and soft all day.Okay, now for what it does for me. I was really unimpressed at first. There was no immediate payoff like some of the other boosters. In fact, for the first week I had tiny little breakouts around my mouth and on my cheeks and my complexion was looking grey, red and dull. I didn't know if it was the niacinimide booster causing this and I was considering returning it, but ultimately decided to keep using it because I'm lazy. And I'm really glad I did. My skin started looking smoother, more even, and had more glow by week 3. Even my crows feet looked less pronounced. I've been using it for about 7 weeks now and every day I get asked by somebody about what foundation I use, saying I look so smooth. The funny thing is, I only started getting these comments recently and the only thing in my routine that has changed is this booster. So my advice is to give it time to work! It really is a great product.
